At University Orthopaedic Associates (UOA), our award-winning surgeons, Dr. Gino Chiappetta, Dr. Matthew McDonnell and Dr. Ravi Verma, have comprehensive training and expertise in diagnosing and treating spinal conditions. Whenever possible, they use the most minimally invasive surgical procedures. Minimally invasive spine surgery uses leading-edge technology to treat spinal conditions or injuries in a way that requires the least amount of manipulation and impact. This reduces surgical times, improves post-surgical pain and helps you recover faster.
